Accepting New Connections

Finding my own recovery path took me time and involved a bit of trial and error. I did not have the benefit of working with other peers on my own recovery until I was working as a Certified Peer Specialist. I began in a place where my doctor was advising me that I needed to accept never working again. That doctor was wrong and this example is why I look to you when it comes to decisions about your recovery. I am simply next to you and there for the journey.

Willing to help others find local resources
